I’ve got a new article up at The Baffler, my first for that magazine/website. I wrote about the financial problems Citi Bike, NYC’s bikeshare program, is having. It’s losing money rapidly, despite its popularity with NYC residents, so I tried to look at why there’s no money and what could be done to improve it.
The Baffler is known for having a lot of pretty polemical lefty content, so in the spirit of the magazine, I place a lot of the blame on Bloomberg.
